Imagine a world where more people meditate daily? The mission of Telesangha is to help make that happen and we’re off to a great start. Check out this snazzy video to learn more.
Here are some facts – over 95% of initial participants would recommend the program to a friend. Those who sign up on average are meditating over 85% of the days they commit to.
“Through the power of community and technology Telesangha provides a simple and fun way to help people develop a consistent daily meditation practice. It has the potential to connect people around the world on a path of awakening awareness!” – Tara Brach Founder IMWC, Renowned Meditation Teacher and Author
What is Telesangha? The idea is simple. Using peer power, technology, and a little structure we can overcome will power. If you sign up for the 6:30am program on a daily basis (Monday – Friday) at 6:30am promptly your phone will ring. You just answer your phone when it rings, press one, and you are instantly connected to the “tele” meditation hall. In the meditation hall you’ll be joined with fellow meditators and your session will start. A shared progress board will be updated with your participation and you will be held to your commitments to the program. We currently offer two types of sessions to meet your needs:
1) Silent Flexible without daily checkins – This is the most widely offered type with sessions almost every hour. The meditation is silent throughout. At 20 minutes you will hear 2 bells, at 30 minutes 3 bells and at 40 minutes 4 bells. You are welcome to meditate for however long you wish and end your meditation just by hanging up. When the call ends there is no daily check in.
2) Silent 20 minutes with daily checkins – This type has fewer options and requires a higher level of commitment. This option is best for those wishing to have an interactive experience. The meditation is silent for 20 minutes. At the end of the meditation a daily checkin question is asked and members take turns sharing their response while the other’s hold the space by listening mindfully. You will be expected to participate in the check in, even if to simple say “I have nothing to share today”.
“What an ingeniously simple way to get social support to meditate more frequently! Heartily recommend to anyone looking to improve the consistency and community around their meditation efforts.” -Vikram S.
